An ARTS and heritage program was launched across the city to celebrate the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 tournament.
The program takes place in the nine host cities – including Brighton and Hove.
Aiming to unveil untold stories of women’s football, it includes photo competitions, exhibitions and training courses.
Julie Hemsley, former Brighton and Hove Albion player and first female member of the FA Council, said: “It has been a pleasure to work with everyone involved in the delivery of the Arts and Heritage programme.
“It reunited many of us gamers for the first time in decades and it has been a pleasure to share our stories and memories.
“The program shows the importance of each player, past and present, and the growth of women’s football.”
Activities include an exhibition at the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery highlighting the experiences of local footballers through portraits, objects and stories.
A fan photo competition is also part of the programme.
Amateur and student photographers are invited to submit their top five images from the tournament, with up to 30 people having a chance to have their images included in an online exhibit and archived at the National Football Museum.
The program is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Arts Council England.
